Hi guys, I am a newby to the forum & was hoping some of you knowledgeable guys could help me out? I am about to trade my Megane Dynamique LX-R on a 225 but am in a quandary. I was going to get a Cup 5dr but unfortunately in OZ they dont come with a sunroof which is something I just cant live without. I know it sounds weird but you gotta remember we have slightly better weather over here & just cant get enough of the whole double roof thing! :lol: The thing is I have now decided to go for the standard 225 5dr with the sunroof etc but I cant stand the wheels on the standard 225. They just seem so plain compared to the rest of the car. Basically I want to add the Cup wheels onto the standard 225 but cant seem to find anywhere OS that sells them. The local dealer has quoted me AUD$4k wich I think is a bit steep. My other option is to wait till the Cup comes out with a sunroof but that could take anywhere up to a year I am told? If anyone has any suggestions or links to Renaultsport aftermarket sights I would be very grateful. I read somewhere that you can get a Cup kit for the standard 225 over there, if so, how much is that & what does it include? Could it be shipped at a reasonable cost do you think? Also if anyone has seen a pic of a dk blue or black 225 with Cup rims that would be great to see also. I know its a lot of questions so thanks in advance for any replies. Its great to see a big Renaultsport community out there! It is slowly but surely growing in OZ. Cheers

Justin.

OZ,

I was in the same situation as you when i found out the cup was released. Ive got the full fat 225 but i got it like 3 weeks after it was released. Certainly here renault UK wont supply an after market cup pack.....ive asked the brand manager as i work for renault but its something about the warrenty.

On the note about getting the sunroof on the cup pack as far as i am aware they are incompatible options......i dont know if its because the cars more rigid??? so ive no idea when they are allowing a sunroof on the cup!

Thats all i can tell you

Hi matey and welcome and I am sure some of the lads/ladies on here will post up some good info for you, I think you can buy the Cup wheels from the dealer here for a damn site cheaper so it may be worth looking into shipping costs, Maybe post on the Webcodes Tech forum as I am sure he can get a price for you from our side but good luck and welcome again

topper thats wheels and tyres.

I myself wanna put my current tyres on cup alloys.

I spent £500 on some Goodyear Eagle F1's which are only about half chewed through at the moment.....this is 8 months after getting them.

Onl problem i need to find out on is if the 225/40/18 tyre will fit ok on the 235/40/18 rim.

Hi Ozsport, welcome to the site.

Could another alternative be buying a different set of after market alloys? As i think you'll either have to pay for the ones at Renault, or pay a large amount on getting some shipped to you. Id love the cup alloys on mine, but they're just too damn expensive over here as well.

Just another idea sprang to mind, could you get the standard ones resprayed?

No that was just for the alloys , i think they were around the 200 mark each then the vat on top ...

Yeah that sounds about right Jamie ..

Alex the 225 / 40/18 tyre will fit as Darryl DCP888 has them on his as he bought the cup alloys but could not afford the more expensive tyre at the time ...

G'day Ozsport.

http://meganesport.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=402 - Here's what the Cup alloys look like with Black/Gold - cool eh?

Oh, and I think the reason that the Cup won't come with a sunroof might be because it was envisaged as more of a track version of the car, and sunroofs and tracks don't mix! They let all the stones from gravel traps in when you put it on its' lid! (I tested this in an Alfa Sprint and know it to be true!)

Get a Cup. It's got aircon. Anything else is overkill and adds weight.....
